Skype has revolutionized the concept of communication in the 21st century. There are approx. 4.9 Million users of Skype every day according to expandedramblings, and there’s no second thought that this number will keep on growing.
When Skype first came out in 2003, it was an application like no other. Using it, people could send each other messages, images, and even do live video calls. Everyone wanted to be a part of this new experience, and in no time, Skype was a hit.
In September 2018, Microsoft introduced a new feature in Skype. They added the ability to record a Skype video call. Trust me; this is everything that was missing. Now, you can record a Skype call on your iPhone, iPad, or even desktop.
No doubt, Skype made it possible to connect with the people you love even if you are miles away. Are you feeling homesick and miss your loved ones?
No need to worry. Seeing your family and friends, talking to them, and making plans with them has never been easier. This application is not only fun to use but also comes with a lot of useful features.
A Skype video call can be just between two people, or it can have a group of people at the same time. A Skype call can take up to 50 people in a single call, making it a perfect choice for group calls and it wont drain your battery.
There can be a lot of beautiful moments while you are on a Skype call. The time when you are with your family online, worry-free, and just talking about life. A mother’s kiss or a father’s advice, sometimes all these precious moments need to be saved.
This is precisely what Skype is offering to you now. You can record the video calls and enjoy them later, turning moments to memories.
Apart from this, Skype is also an excellent platform for formal video conferences which you can also do on your smartphone. You can have a business meeting with a group of people online. You can share documents and even PowerPoint slides while having a discussion. Now, with the help of the Skype call recording, you can record this whole conversation and see it later.
The Skype call recording is always saved on the cloud server and not on your device. Also, this recording will only be available for just 30 days, after which the Skype server will remove it. So, if you want them for later, you can download and save them.
Furthermore, while recording, everyone in the call will be notified that you are making a video. Once finished, the recording will be posted in the chat and will be available for everyone to see and download.
